benefits. we have asked experts to join us for a fiscal cliff roundtable discussion, if you will. ron brownstein is a senior -- cnn senior political analyst and editorial director of the national journal and stephen moore, senior economics writer at the "wall street journal" and is in washington, d.c. first up, ron, will, do you think, these politicians reach a deal or not and why or why not? >> the fiscal cliff was yeelted as a doomsday machine to try to give them more will power to do what they can't do on their own, to reach a deal. the reason all of this was here, incentive to reach a deal, some of your guests pointed out during the day, a lot can go wrong when you leave is it to this late, a little little surprising to me republicans don't feel urgency, talk about this in a minute, maybe, the wolf on the other side of the cliff, difficult for both sides, the country is worse for the republicans than the democrats. it's possible they make a deal, possible they go over, no more precision than that. >> are we thelma and luiz, rocketing towards that canyon? >> took the words out of m
reuses, charters and our rocket boat we operate to tib bureau ron, angel island and our commuter ferry service to tib bureau ron and the 15 services are all maintained by blue and gold feet employees at our pier nine facility in san francisco. i don't believe this slide needs much explanation these are the public agencies who over see our operations as you can see, we get a lot of help. every from the port to fish and game and i believe we have a good relationship with all of the agencies since we abide and understand that each agency has a job do and performs a service to the public. blue and gold employs 250 employees during the peak season and one 75 employees year round, we have a diverse workforce and are proud of providing a an atmosphere for quloiys to reach their potential and we have a numerous employees that have started as photographers and have become captains and we believe promoting from within and our workforce is a testament to that belief. the masters and piles you know represent our captainses engineer and is ticketing staff as well as the deck hand who work on ex
paid out. >> reporter: ron boat man installed solar panels. and last year he went one step further we are a small wind turbine. >> the rebates for the wind generator were really substantial. >> he expected to get more than 7600 in rebates from the california energy commission to offset the 24 grand he paid for his system. but after applying for the state rebate ron learned his wind turbine no longer qualifies. >> they dangled this big carrot out there in front of you. you go through the hoop to go green and everything else. and once you reach to the carrot they pulled it away now. >> they were asleep at the wheel. >> the rebate list never should have qualified. >> the turbines had not been well tested. >> the state paid californians more than 500,000 in rebates for turbines that didn't create as much energy as the manufacture claimed to the state. in some cases the state energy commission found it was seven and a halftimes greater than theoretically possible. >> they had a hummer that would get 150-miles to the gallon is what they were saying. >> it suspended the program in 2011. the
breaking overnight. as always, it's ron claiborne. >> two men are in custody this morning for allegedly planning a terror plot in the united states. they were in florida. but were in touch with radicals overseas. senior justice correspondent, pierre thomas, join us with the details. >> reporter: good morning. the two ft. lauderdale men are accused of threatening to blow up a bomb in the u.s. sources tell abc news, this was not a sting. and that the younger brother had been in contact with overseas radicals, possibly connected to al qaeda. the indictment accused the men of attempting to provide money, lodging and transportation, and conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction. and sources say, the fbi found evidence that the younger brother, had been monitoring recent fbi sting cases. so, authorities say infiltrating the alleged conspiracy was a non-starter. one law enforcement source described the young man's intent as serious. but the source said, the attack was not imminent. >> okay. pierre thomas, thanks for that report. >>> we have breaking news overnight from overseas. a new pro
in the housing markets and for hundreds of thousands of charities in this country. again as i say, which ron didn't respond to, this party that has paraded around, the party that wants to rein in government spending, they are unable to identify any changes in medicare or entitlement spending which shows the tea party at its core was a phoney, phoney movement. >> joy, it's interesting to hear ron referring to august 2011 because a number of refers appear to have forgotten something happened in november 2012 called a presidential election. >> right. it was an election in which president obama, unprecedented for a democrat, actually ran on a platform of raising taxes. he said, i'm going to raise taxes on the top 2% and he was re-elected resoundingly with it. to what ron said, if it's only $14 trillion, what's the big deal, go ahead and let the rich pay it? that's number one. number two, the other thing that's been exposed and what's true, what's always been true about conservativism is that the core principle is the rich don't pay too much, they pay too little. when they say things like broaden the
this for a bill that can't and shouldn't become law. joining us now is ron meier, spokesperson for american majority action and jared bernstein a senior fellow and an msnbc contributor. welcome to you both. jared, this plan b, it's not only an affront to what the president has been trying to do in terms of a balanced approach. it's also a colossal waste of time, isn't it? >> absolutely. i mean, i have been writing about this in terms of theatrics at a time when really nobody ought to be going to the theater. the fiscal cliff is way too close for this type of game playing and i just noted today that the gdp report for the third quarter got a little bit of a bump. it was marked up to 3.1%. we're actually making some progress on this economic recovery, but if we go over and stay over the cliff because of all this screwing around, forget about it. you're going to have that recovery go south very quickly. john boehner on monday looked like a guy who is willing to make a balanced compromise or at least consider one in the interest of the country. john boehner on wednesday looks like a guy who is
forflez and after that ron miguel. >> good evening madam chairman, fellow commissioners. my name is manuel florez and part of the carpenters union close to 33 years and over the years i have seen a lot of projects but i tell you the designs i see for this one. this is what you call a smart development. what does that mean "a smart equipment". i am talking about a world class arena. >> >> i'm looking beyond the jobs what this can do for the city and county of san francisco. i will the team here is well aware of what they're up against that it's an uphill battle but they're here rolling up their sleeps. good economic sense and it can be done. you know we're going to get a lot of noise. we're going to get a lot of dust. we're going to get a lot of traffic no doubt and you know what? somebody's view is going to be blocked, but at the end of the day this can work. a first class arena for the city and county of san francisco. that's what we need. that's what we deserve because this is a city that knows how no doubt. they know how to do it and i look forward to more of these d
yourself with miles to go before you sleep, something to think about. from abc's ron claiborne. >> reporter: the video is shocking. a woman driving a car in denver asleep at the wheel. watch as she drifts in and out of her line, somehow she never crashes. she drove 30 miles before a police car was finally able to pull her over. about 6800 drivers each year aren't so lucky. they fall asleep while driving, crash and die. drowsy driving is the second-leading cause of fatal vehicle accidents behind only drunk driving and ahead of driving while texting. it's not just driving that is affected. a recent study in the journal of american medical association estimated that workplace accidents from sleep deprivation cost $31 billion of damage every year. >> sleep is such a powerful drive that if you really need it, the brain is going to say, sleep. and that can be an incredibly dangerous situation. >> reporter: but it's driving while sleeping that is especially harrowing. some drowsy drivers experience a phenomenon you probably never heard of called micro sleep where you fall asleep for just a few sec
of jordan davis. lucia, you got that phone call. ron found out first and called you, what was your feeling? what happened to you when you got that call? >> it just, when i happened to come up in the bedroom and i saw my phone light up and i saw that it was ron. i knew it had to do with jordan. i knew 11:00 at night, there would be no other reason why he would be calling. and when i picked up the phone and he said where is earl get earl. and i knew that it had to do with jordan. i knew something was terply, terribly wrong. and i think i knew in my spirit, i knew that he was gone. i felt that. >> ron, dow think that it was in your voice when you made that call. i can't imagine having to make that call to the mother of this child that you both just lost. >> when i cam back from the hospital from seeing him. that it was my child in the hospital that passed. walking up to my front door thinking i can tell my wife jordan's step mother first of all and going through the reaction and then the realization to the both of us that we have to make that call to jordan's mother. and the first thing i tho
on the planet earth. ron and i normally do the taste testing around here. we're very excited about this. >>> also, check this out. the flying squirrel in the house this morning. gabrielle douglas is here. she's here live. she has a new memoir out, where she says she almost quit right before the olympics. she's going to be taking questions from a whole gaggle of young fans. very much looking forward to that. >> so many people excited to meet her this morning. >>> also, countdown to crisis. we're 24 days from tax increases for everyone and big, painful federal budget cuts, unless president obama and house speaker john boehner can strike a deal. we'll have the latest on the battle of wills in washington. >> the president is out this morning with a not-so-conciliatory note. we'll get the latest from david kerley coming up. >>> check this out. why all new cars may soon be spying on their drivers and making it tough for you to cover your tracks. >>> we're going to start, though, with what should have been a joyous week for the royal family. but news of kate's pregnancy was very quickly oversh
taylor, ron christie, who is a republican strategist, both with me here in new yorkened a dr. james peterson, an associate professor at lehigh university, a regular contributor to thegrio.com. welcome to all of you. ron, the gop has announced a new party, quote, grow the party and win. how effective will it be when the only recognizable names are ari fleischer and haley barbour's nephew henry who believe the polls are skewed against mitt romney. >> i don't agree with that. i think politics is about addition not subtraction. we did a very bad job with outreach with people of color, we alienated college educated women, the gay vote and the hispanic vote. if the republicans are serious about growing as a party and about moving forward not only for 2014 but the presidential election, we need to grow and expand our base and we didn't do it this time. >> when the election was in process, why were you not standing up and condemning publicly some of the things that were repeatedly being said that were mildly racist, deliberately sexist, often divisive of people. why didn't you stand up and
four. >>> lot of other news developing overnight. we turn to mr. ron claiborne. >> good morning, everyone. >>> u.s. forces in afghanistan have repelled an attack on a joint base. taliban suicide bombers assaulted the jalalabad early this morning. striking a gun battle that lasted two hours. all of the attackers were killed. no u.s. troops were injured. >>> new details this morning on that deadly bus crash at miami international airport. two people were killed when a religious group's bus slammed into an overpass because the driver took a wrong turn. >> reporter: good morning, ron. as many three people are clinging to life this morning after that crash in miami. >> very bloody. everybody had cuts and scrapes. >> reporter: the entire front of this bus, caved in and the ceiling collapsed injuring more than 30 and killing one 56-year-old and other 80-year-old senior citizen. the driver got lost and somehow managed at the miami international airport, plowing his bus through. >> we're not sure why he misjudged the terminal building. >> reporter: at a nearby hospital, one injured perso

and the city as what ron would say "a match made in heaven" because computer engineering is what i call a hybrid between electrical engineering and computer science because it world has many different sectors and you want to be versatile. you don't want to -- well, some of us would prefer to be experts in one field. for example programming or making robots, but i think being versed in both sides of the spectrum tells you tremendously understanding programming, electronics, signal processing, networking, chip design -- i could go on and on, and i think this will give us more opportunities in the area rather than being skilled in one thing. now i'm a senior and i am graduating in the spring, fingers crossed and i couldn't have made a better choice. i think computer engineering was the best choice for me. like i said opportunities are not always readily available. we all get nervous about that. sometimes we need to take charge and take those opportunities so last summer i decided to take it a step further and i applied for probably about 200 different interning opportunities that i sa
thurman. ron and i were fortunate enough many moons ago to have a class by dr. thurman. an amazing african american pastor who could write. these are some things for you to consider when trying the true meaning of christmas. you won't forget to go to church on christmas eve of course. but here's a short poem. at christmas time, the tide flows out from the inner sea. at christmas time they find their way to many shores with gifts of remembrances, thoughts of love, though the world be weary and the days afraid, the heart renews its life and mind takes hope from the tides that flow from the inner sea at christmas time. thurman talking about advent as a time of preparation. and the person to begin with is you. and so that is the important thing. christmas returns as it always does with the assurance that life is good. it's a time to lift to the spirit. when the mind feels its way into the common place and senses the wonder of simple things. evergreen tree. familiar carols. it's a time of alum nation when candles burn and old dreams find their youth again. it's a time of pause when forgotten jo
, as always, with mr. ron claiborne. >> hi, dan, bianna. we begin in australia, with a confrontation with a shark. it cost a surfer two fingers and a chunk of his leg. the 29-year-old was surrounded by a pod of dolphins when the shark attacked yesterday. >> my legs. >> and witnesses say the man used his surfboard to fight off the shark. but the shark bit off two of his fingers. >>> and police in new york city are searching for a woman who pushed a man to his death in front of an oncoming subway train. police are checking homeless shelters and psychiatric units for the woman seen in this surveillance video running away from the scene of that crime. authorities released a sketch of that suspect. investigators used a smartphone and a bottle prescription pills to identify the victim. he is the second person in a month to be pushed to his death in the new york city subway system. >>> and the neighbor of the gunman who shot and killed two firefighters is under arrest, accused of buying two of the guns in that christmas eve ambush. dawn young of rochester allegedly purchased the weapons in
" never sounded so good. >> those guys are great. you can see ron tapping. they do a mean "feliz navidad." great to have them with us this morning. >>> also this morning, we are going to take a look at some fancy high, high-end christmas gifts affordable only for people who may have recently won the lottery. for example this thing. a jet pack, $100,000. this guy drives it well. i got a chance to test drive it, and that's what happened. yeah, yeah. it didn't go so well. >> it looks like fun when he was. with you, dan -- >> as it turns out it's tricky to use. >> yeah. >> the gift that keeps on giving. >> perhaps we shouldn't be running that story. >>> also this morning, keep a close eye on those gifts you do buy. unfortunately, 'tis the season for christmas crimes, as well. and we'll show you some bad guys caught on tape red handed stealing people's presents. that's coming up next. >>> but we're going to start here this half hour with what is shaping up to be the big story on christmas and the days of a. severe weather, it could strand many of the 93 million americans who travel for the ho
lady in that building and from what i have observed and what i heard from ron case. i found by checking with justin gen and abc that there is a place for retail wine shop and it didn't say they wanted to be retail wine shop. they said we want to be a wine-tasting bar, either written in by them or abc, because that was the intent. here they were given a clear conditional use that said repeatedly in order to avoid confusion, it will not be a bar. the noise problem was brought to my attention, apart from the fact that i hear it when i go by there with the windows and doors open by many people and certainly by the managers in the building; when i went there on a different purpose that the elders there really suffer. i brought you some of the statements of support, okay? there is a petition, signed by people all over the city, and? in the greater nob hill area and nobody nearby within a block or two blocks except one i see on the page. statements on the black, i want to change the verbiage from wine-tasting to wine bar. now you can say it doesn't add a bar, but it does really. he added a bar
? let's find out. dana milbank has the right attitude, and ron reagan, a good friend of mine, an msnbc political analyst. i have to let you at this first, ron reagan. every time i see "gone with the wind" the southern guys cheering, they can't wait to tame miss scarlet. we're going to have a war and it's going to be great. and then the horror of 600,000 people dead including the burning of atlanta. then everybody says this wasn't such a great idea. now they're talking like secession is a good idea begin. who are these maniacs? >> i'm sure all these people who are plumping for secession would call themselves patriots. >> of what country? >> real americans. >> well, good question here. so the way it works apparently is when democracy doesn't go your way, when you have an election and the other side wins, you throw the entire 200-plus years of the american experiment into the dumper. you have a little kind of hissy fit here. we've all about in groups of people where maybe eight, ten people and one of the people, one of the people in this group is character disordered. they're a real socio
, and with me tonight are msnbc political analyst ron reagan and real clear politics reporter erin mcpike. i was stunned to see bobby casey, the senator from pennsylvania, who is a classic pennsylvanian, in the past he's received a b plus or an a rating from the nra. he told "the philadelphia enquirer" he will come back for -- coming out for a new assault weapons ban and legislation banning high round magazines. he said his decision amounted to being summoned by your conscience. he said his wife had pressed him to rethink his position on gun safety in the wake of newtown. he said the power of the weapon, the number of bullets that hit each child, that was so, to me, just so chilling, it haunts me. it should haunt every public official. if those two bills come before the senate, i will vote for both. that's a risky, strong position by bob casey. >> he's not the only one. joe manchin, the senator from west virginia, on monday was saying this has changed his thinking. of course, these are two democrats -- >> but manchin hasn't said he will vote for these two bills. bobby casey said he will. it'
ban was largely cosmetic. >> give me a ron reagan gun bill. >> a ron reagan gun bill says just like when you want to buy a car or drive a car, you have to go and prove that you understand the laws surrounding the use of your gun. you have to prove you know how to use your gun, how to store your gun, how to clean your gun. you've got to go through a background check, of course, whether you buy the gun at a gun show or anywhere else. think of the stupidity of the gun show loophole. i mean, was bob casey talking about that? the fact you can buy a gun over ruling out the possibility of some gun control legislation, but catch his act. this is what the republican party has been brought down to. they have to kiss the butt of the gun guys. take a look. >> we join the president in mourning the victims of the horrible tragedy in connecticut. he's appointed vice president biden to lead a commission. when the vice president's recommendations come forward, we'll certainly take them into consideration. at this point i think our hearts and souls ought to be to think about those victims in this --
"blackwards," ron christie. thank you so much for joining us inside "the war room" again. >> governor, it is nice to see you again. >> jennifer: all right. so do you think republicans have recovered from losing the election? >> well, i think we have. i think there's no question that although president obama got less of the popular vote than he did the last time around, his electoral college numbers went up. he won. but the other thing that i would say to you governor, is senate republicans, the american people voted for the status quo. they kept the republicans running the majority in the house of representatives to keep a check on the executive branch and so while we did take a shellacking in the presidential election, we still have one of the houses of congress -- it is up to the congress to negotiate with the president. >> jennifer: i gotta stop you on that though because the democrats won the popular vote in the house races too by a million votes. yes, republicans maintained control. but they lost seats and a large
